Obstrobogulous overspend...

Brilliant (click to enlarge). Hat-tip Matt Wardman over at Anna Raccoon's. It's an online visualisation of US Government Debt starting from a single 100 dollar bill right up to the 114.5 trillion US unfunded liabilities: go here: wfynoway. Equally good is the one of the sources for this figure (another source being the US Federal Reserve of course!): - "see the debt in real time" (but also figures for population, stats, money supply, deficits, workforce, tax etc).

I do like the fact that on the wfynoway link there is an advert from Vodafone which starts off with "make your money go further."

Stare at the for too long and you end up looking like a cartoon character with $ signs in your eyes.
